2010-2011 was also good in my opinion

Spring 2013 was a pretty good season as well, and it influenced /a/ in a pretty good way.

People who say this have never seen enough shows from the 80s and 90s, especially OVAs, with far more stupid moments. At least in this case you could see the result coming from a mile away if you paid any attention. Still silly, but then again the show always was like that and knew it.

Geass wasn't even that long ago. I remember the GSD shitstorms, and I remember some threads from when the first FMA anime aired.
>>
Luckily, I think /a/ hasn't turned into a completely cancer board like others here on 4chan (it's possible to at least have discussion about shows / manga) but its definitely getting not as good. Honestly, what I miss was the sense of the entire board watching a show together (even if they never were in the first place). Like, before 2012 shows would crop up and it seemed like everyone on the board was talking about it. Now every show gets one thread. It feels like everyone is more divided.

That by itself isn't terrible, but that gets coupled with the fact that none of these threads really generate OC anymore (I think this is due to the website wide backlash against memes) makes the whole board feel stale.
>>
>>138858696

But you did right anon, because all those shows, except for Geass, are shit.

I think the reason why no one allows memes anymore is because it attracts the wrong type of people. If you look at /v/ and see how that place is somewhat overrun with people talking about memes rather than content, I guess that's why people dislike them and discourage them.
But then again I'm a newfag so I don't know what I'm talking about.

Only the first of those is actually worth watching even without /a/, so you lose anon.

>>138858942

Fun. There were a lot of arguments about PMMM vs. Infinite Stratos. Episode 10 was legendary. What often gets ignored (and why I think watching Madoka was a billion times better if you watched it while it was airing) is that a huge earthquake hit Japan after episode 10 aired, delaying the final 2 episodes by a month. It was one of the first seasons that I got to experience with /a/ and its really a fond memory of the site.

Really, no memes are actually that funny. Its like when someone in your group of friends makes a funny a joke, and you guys reference the joke in the future. The reference isn't really funny, except the memory of what it is referencing is a funny / fond memory. Memes are basically that reference, except unlike with a group of friends, how many people were actually around for the incident that made it funny? So as communities get larger memes become less of something that feels like everyone got to experience together as a group of friends, and devolves into what is essentially a joke where the only punchline is "I know this reference". Basically I think the internet / memes got to popular for us to enjoy them.

Because it was almost a decade ago and lol has become too mainstream

"coolface" was a meme popular on /v/ in 2009 and now it is shit and no one uses it- the other day I saw some dumb ten year old with a "umad" shirt with coolface on it.

The fact is that normalfags ruin everything.
>>
>>138859622
Well it's the evolution of terminology. People outside of 4chan didn't really talk like that. Now we move onto shit like 'kek', because people outside 4chan still don't use it (I think, anyway. I don't really go anywhere but 4chan).
The insider/outsider dichotomy drives a lot of what 4chan's boards are about.

It's also why it's important to drop memes and lingo like hot fucking rocks when they're picked up by outsiders. More difficult today though since shit gets picked up so fast that you see it being posted here by outsiders as if they are bringing it here. Or rather, bringing outsider variants here.
Which just makes it more important to hold nothing sacred but the distain of outsiders, even if it's just to get outsiders to also pretend to hate outsiders.

>>138859713
/a/ always had naruto threads. It's tolerance of naruto threads that killed /a/. It's having them accepted, even reluctantly.
Not only are there big three threads, there are big three GENERALS.
That's unfathomable.

>Which just makes it more important to hold nothing sacred but the distain of outsiders, even if it's just to get outsiders to also pretend to hate outsiders.

The funny thing about /pol/ and /r9k/ is that they seem to make a conscious effort to make memes too toxic for outsiders to use, like the attempts of tumblr to co-opt Pepe and the subsequent flood of poop related pepes and /pol/'s association of pepe with Trump.

With Berserk I think Miura is fully capable of finishing the story within his life time. It seems likes the story is heading towards a conclusion, no matter how slowly.

But Togashi has something like 3 or 4 more arcs planned? The pace he is setting along with the fact that I think he is in poorer health makes me pretty much fully confident that there will never be an end to HxH. I think he is literally going to die in the middle of some arc. It's pretty hopeless feeling.

I wonder if its similar to what fans of Zero no Tsukaima felt.
>>
>>138859959
Oh, he was arguing about the final ep like everyone else but he also went on several rants about black helicopters following him.

Same thing with Gurren Lagann and Madoka. Stein's;Gate ep23 was legendary as well.

Everyone was so easy to amuse then. Nowadays, everyone's so cynical, so angry.

Honestly that's one of the four main reasons I think the site's quality has degraded.

The other three are the loss of content creators which every board has suffered from, the adoption of a universal us vs them mentality which has caused every poster to assume every other poster is a new fag or sitosterol regardless of the discussion topic, and 'generals' taking over on every board.

The last of which is the worst since it stifles creativity and only serves to segment the user base, dividing it and leading to a greater adoption of the us vs them shot that already poisoned it.

You know the reason quality degraded after /pol/ came back is not because of /pol/ right? If you ever looked at /q/ or /qa/ you'd realise there has been a long shitposting war against the board by tumblrtards for a long time

They have been falseflagging for fucking ever trying to get the board deleted. Making /pol/ look like its flooding the site when it actually isn't

Why would /pol/ users be interested in talking to people who don't follow any world events and therefore don't understand the trends we see all the time?
>>
>>138862600
That's because 2007 is the cutoff. And Code Geass was shit. The weekly threads were just a retarded attempt to emulate the actual TTGL shitstorms that happened because people thought that was the normal way to post and not the exception.

The amount of traffic coming to 4chan exploded in 2007 in a way that was impossible to properly assimilate them. In /a/ specifically there was an influx of shitty posters because of a direct pipeline from websites like narutofan and gaia.

It's good that we get new posters to keep things fresh. It was bad that they came all at once.

No, it really was 2007. You used to be able to check the data pretty easily when Alexa was still free. Things went crazy during summer 2007.

Even without Alexa it's obvious when you look at the large number of people that remember shitposting about CG but how relatively few were around for ttgl. Meanwhile, almost no one here even remembers what things were like when Haruhi was airing.

2008 is definitively 'new' and 2007 is borderline.

It's a naming convention, not some kind of title you earn. Think of it more like golden age vs silver age comics, a separation of eras.

Really? I remember it being quite obvious.

OPM isn't fun, it's literally the type of trashy manga I used to read back when I was excited for Naruto and Bleach every week. The fact it repeats the same joke over and over and is the same thing its supposed to be parodying makes it terrible

For me this was a great moment. I didn't like Euphemia at first, she was really annoying, like she was trying to do more than she was capable of, she was just given the power because of royal family and stuff, but the geass activating on her by accident resulting in all that was fucking glorious. Not that I enjoyed it because I didn't enjoy her character, rather, I started enjoying her character after it. It was great to see her trying to fullfill the command but also struggling to keep it down.

We were young then.
I bet if you'd taken a survey back then, most users would have been in their late teens to early twenties. Do the same survey now and most of us are in our late twenties and early thirties.
All the newfags now will likely never get the chance to make stuff that will cause them to cringe later due to the downward pressure of older anons who know better from experience.

I go back through my old folders now and then and most of it was only funny in context or as a result of it being a shared meme. They're enjoyable more for the memories than the actual content now.

It is the future, dumbfucks on Facebook and Instagram are literally living in the past. What we long since threw away, they eventually will too

All it will take is one huge scandal to do with privacy and normalfags will abandon ship
>>
>>138864892
This is true as evidenced by: >>138864842
>>
>/a/ is all split up into single threads for shows
This is because of the catalog & search. It combines single small threads that die quickly about a show into one thread about a show as well as meaning bait threads get tons of replies because of visibility and lack of sage use

That's just because of the massive bump limit. It made a really big difference when it was changed. Old /a/ was far more ephemeral.

shame and embarrassment used to be enough of a deterrent to stop bad threads from being made but now every naruto, homestock, and game of thrones gets it's own little perpetual chatroom general. It's disgusting.

All this talk about what has changed this board is interesting but can we all agree that internet culture as a whole went to shit when it became accessible to just about anybody? I'm talking about mainstream social media sites. I'd argue it was even before them that the internet started to feel different.

You know that bait threads happen more often because people are bored of the same shit every day? It's like every season you know you're going to see a thread about every shitty anime with 10 posters in them and it gets grating. Then the rest is Kancolle, JoJo, Monsume containment threads, fucking yawn. Its all filtered and you realize there's no interesting content

All of 4chan is like this now, it's literally ręddit-fied

A good bit of shitposting gets the blood boiling

What did /a/ think about pyssu in the past?
>>
The feelings I get when I think of old /a/ are the same I get after a high: I feel a desire to amaze myself as much as I did as a kid. I consider myself a creative person, and while the things I might create now are surely more mature than the shit I did as a kid, truth is it is much harder to surprise myself now. Well, it's the same for 4chan. It's not even nostalgia.
>>
Not as big as you might believe.
Geass only reached legendary status when pants on heads retarded R2 was airing.
>>138858942
It was great, not only due to /a/ but everybody in 2ch too was speculating and creating OC.
Easily my favorite time spend on /a/. Shame Madoka threads nowadays are just trite yurishit.
>>
>>138865408
The problem arises when everyone does that and it's only shitposting everywhere. Then everyone believes that shitposting is how it should be all the time, and now we have constant shitposts instead of occasional ones to liven up the mood.

tl;dr: without moderate shitposting, we have constant shitposting.

Scary story, a friend of mine recently once did a survey with a bunch of teenagers and found out nobody uses facebook anymore, or at least they don't use it as often as instagram or snapchat. To them facebook is for "long form" opinions pieces. The good news? None of them mentioned tumblr.

This. The organization of everything splits posters. It means people who watch anime end up in seasonal threads which gets very stagnant and then you have threads outside of that full of constant shitposting and endless generals.

I usually don't feed into this, but /v/ is rife with elitism. We always had quite a bit on /a/, but most fags would discard it for FUN.

Now it's the other way around and most anons would rather shitpost than allow fun if it's not about their favorite siamese smoke signal

All politics should be kept off of /a/ because they're off-topic and just start rampant shitposting and fear-mongering, no matter how hard you try to make it "about anime".

Come on anon, he was totally on 4chan and experiencing things when he was seven years old!

watching a trainwreck/ultra-hype/mindfuck show with /a/ is why I'm still here.

What other value could this board possibly have?

There were constantly threads on naruto fan about how awesome /a/ is, how 4chan isn't that bad. The ones who were forcing 'epic' Geass threads were these kids and when the other lurking idiots saw that it was acceptable they all jumped in. TTGL changed everything. Kids there were constantly linking back to /a/, the demographic changed.

If you don't want to believe that's happened I don't really know what to tell you except that is what happened.

If you listen closely you can still hear the cheers of "Britannia" echoing through these halls.

>>138863133
That was such a wild ride. I never felt closer to a group of strangers online as we collectively grieved and cheered at a Japanese boy's anime.
I believe many of us retired "Gar" from use after this series.
Truthfully I can't watch the series again. It doesn't feel the same. And it is only this show. Some how /a/ broke my anti-social tendencies and made me care.

>>138882946
Nah. If I remember correctly, "gar" was still used a lot after this because of SAIGAR. After a year(?) people called it quits and the meme started fading away.

It was the "ride" back then. I remember everyone waiting excitedly for ep15. Every fucking thread was about TTGL.

There was one not too long ago that got into a pretty good roll (at least 300 posts, up for about a day and a half) before it got modsniped. Fucking no fun mods, those threads were my lifeblood for a while.

When ttgl aired, the hype crossed over into /b/ and /v/ as well as /a/ and row row played on all 3 of the boards during the last episodes.

/pol/ is not politically incorrect, /pol/ is conspiracy general, that's why everyone hates it.

>>138859713
Nah, general threads are what killed /a/.
It all started with mods allowing those shitty Idol Master and Mobage general threads. Now EVERYONE make general threads.

Actually one of the best Christmas gifts.

Molester was one of the best stories I've read especially with a proper fucking conclusion. Onani would be the other.

Wonder if it's possible for them to be animated.

I dropped the series right when the author decided that LC and Haqua should become irrelevant and make the 2 worst fucking girls to be the center of the story.

Man, this just reminds me of what it was like before places like this existed. You would go buy vhs and dvd of Ranma 1/2 and Tenchi and Evangelion maybe and record stuff and be lucky to find anything at all online.
